Maltese and Hair Pin Work 








HK ri-vivnl of the very popular Hiiii-pin I.iice, cniiiliiiu-d with I'rcichct, as produced In tlie new Adjustalile 
Hairpin Fork, <Teates many new, fascinatinfi: patterns. 

Tliis lace can lie made of cotton, silk or wool thread, and be equally eftective in their respective designs. 
.Mso, any size thread may be used to suit the taste of the maker. 

For example: L'.se fine or coarse cotton thread to make Maltese lace for center pieces, handkerchiefs, piano 
scarfs, etc. 

The fine silk may be used to make face veils, while the e larser silks make most beautiful band baps, and wool thread 
or yarns make handsome shawls, scarfs, baby ca])s, etc. 

The most suitalih- implement for making- this laee is the new adjustable Ilairjiin Fork, as all sizes of lace may be 
made upon this fork, tlicreliy eliminating- tlie use of many needles. 

The designs in this book arc not only beautiful, liut Mr(- strictly original, and have never before been published, an<l 
we believe a perusal of these pages will awaken a dee]) intcn-sl in this simple but beautiful art, especially viben one con- 
siders the possibility of ada])ting and apjilying it in so many ways to the beautification of the modern home. 

The principal crochet stitches illustrated and explained in this book comprise all the methods used in Maltese Lace 
or Hairpin Crochet. With tliese simple little loop stitches an infinite variety of beautiful and useful articles can be made with 
less material, less time and great deal easier on the nerve than other crochet, so far known. 


There are so many domestic threads on the market that even with the same number they differ in size. The cordonet 
threads or cotton are nmch easier to work with than a soft finish, and they launder better. Tlie sizes from 15 to 30 are bet- 
ter numliers for beginners, as it works up speedier and more encouraging. 

No. 1.5 to 20 cotton you can make at least two-thirds of a yard before you remove the prongs for a new addition. It 
is very desirable if you intend to make a large piece to work up two or three balls of gimp before you start to Join, as it 
will avoid having to connect another piece. It is far better t i have a piece over, as you can cut it like a piece of tape by 
(utting the little rick-rack braid that is made in center of pr ings. Cut the narrowest part of braid between the loops - 
not the loop. It will come apart. Then ]iull the little cuds tlial wci-c cut. Fasten the one i nd with vour crochet hook and 
the other side you need not fasten at all. This feature is a great advantage mIminc other crochet work and makes the wnrU 
inucli neater. 

To regulate your work, get your linen center ready by shrinking linen. When pres.sed, make a circle the size you 
wish, stitch over this by machine, then trim the linen close to the stitching. Then take the size thread you wish and single 
stitch around the circle by alternating one chain and one single stitch, not too tight. On a straight piece it is done in same 
manner. Then take your hairpin string and begin your pattern, dose enough to circle around the linen, but avoid too much 
fullness in the center of braid. The first row is the most imp >rtant. Vou can sew or crochet the hairpin work to the linen, 
but do not cut the string until you are certain that it will reach. Cut it as described in Detail No. 11. W'lieii cut, join 
both ends of braid with sli]) stitch. Then make a long loop to reach the outer end of loop. 

The size and number of crochet hook-depends entirely upon the size of thread used and on the worker, as no two indi- 
viduals work alike.

To the friends of crochet work, only ,a few words of eneour.agement regarding Hairpin work. I take 
tjic liberty to assure you that there is no more simple work done by the crochet liook than this new effective 
work, just ])ut in the hands of the industrious ladies and childrtn. 

Also, the directions are very simple and not hard to underst.and when read word by word and worked 
.as you go .along. Do not read a whole line at once, but like a new beginner in the A 15 C, and you will h.ave 
no trouble to accomplish a good bit in less time than in Filet Crochet,

Fiauvc 1 sliows the needle witli tlie 

prongs adjusted to one-inch size. To 

\\ ork it : 'I'ie tlie tliread around one pi'on,i>' 

and made a chain stiteh with a crocliet 

hook. Hold the needle in left hand and 

make a lon^^' loop around the iM<4ht-hand 

pron^'. I'laee the thi'ead o\ ei' the tinu'er 

of left hand, as in othei- crochet work. 

'rui'ii the fork so that the thread hecomes 

])asse<l round the left-hand ])ron_i4', which 

now is at the right-hand side. Take the 

crocliet hook and put it under the front 

thread of the left-hand loop: draw tlu' 

cotton thi'ou,<>h, thus making' a loop on the 

liook. *'l'ni'n the foi'k so as to hrini;' the 

thread round its left-hand |)ronL;', whic-h. 

in the tui'uiny. is now at the rii^iit hand. J'"'- -• 

Pass the hook hetween the arms of the 
haii'|)in, so that it can con\enientlv make a chain stitch h\- drawinti- the tin'cad throu'di tiie 
loop that is on the hook, which must woi'k in the space hetween the two pronos. Put the 
hook into the left-hand loop, takim;' u]) the front of it, and make an ordinary sin<>-le ci-ochet. 
l{epeat the directions from * continuing' thus to work until the hair])in is full of loo|)s. Then 
loosen the thumh screw and take the pi-onn's from the device. Slip the lace fi-om the hottom 
of the pron;^', rctaininii' se\eral loops to continue the work as shown in Fi<>nre 2. 

The r'ork can he adjusted to make a i^imp from two and one-half inches down to one- 
half inch. The larn'c prongs and exclusively for the wider hraid. and are to he inserted in 
the outer sockets.

It is simi)ly a long cliaiii stite'li and a singli- 
stitc-li. Tlu- main tliinif ni-i-cssary to olist-rvc is to 
make the stitch i ven length, as it is only ])rftty if 
tvfnnt-ss charms the eye. 

To work it: *Make one long cli. : take tilt- 
thread on hook from hack of long ch. so you liave 
.1 single thread trnm back on needle with a chain 
link that you liad on hook, then |)ick the thread on 
hook auain and draw it through both the long ones 
already on hook and this forms a single stitch ( *or 
as some like to call it. a half-stiti'h ). Then to 
complete the knot stitch, repeat from * to * (star). 
I'asten in fonndation and continue. 

If you make this Lovers' Knot as a circular 
k like .m ordinary ch. st. This forms the link. Now 
insert the hook and fasten with ,i sg. st. Pick up the w'"'!^' link so that you have two threads on hook, as it 
makes it stronger and does not i>ull out of place. Yo" must arrange the joining so it is not noticed. 
On a straight piece, for instance, a jiiano cover, .vou will make a whole' Knot in j.lace of ch. sts. 
.at the end of the row. Fasten it on the first top sg. st. I'or straight work the same stitch that api.e.ared a ch. 
link on right side, you will see a little hole like an eyelet of a needle. In this you insert your hook to fast, n 
vour Lovers' Knot. Repeat. 

Be sure to get your first of the stitch long. tl>e sg. real short— enough to l.^t your hook through. 
No widening done in Lovers' Knot. You must provide for that in first row.

A Simple Fringe Made of Hairpin Lace 

Fig. !1. 

One of the many useful ways lo hiing in the Hairpin work. The 
giuiii uuist first he made, and for such a puriiose the ordinary kind 
already shown in Fig. 1, either silk, cotton or wool can he used for 
same. 'I'lie size of thread should lie used thniughout: in .1 few casis 
it might he that a fine silk with cotton would make a gnod li)iil<iug 

For a heading of the fringe, work as follows: I'wo single in 
e\ cry loop along, the side of loops, then finish off with a (licot. .\long 
the lower edge make 3 or .5 (as i)referred) ; if close tassels ,ire 
wanted, make less si. stitches, say :i slips i>f loojis, .') ch., 3 sl., 5 eh. to end of row. 

A o-eneral wav of making fringe: Miiul some of the silk or cotton around a piece of eardlioard the si/.e you wish 
the length of fringe. Cut the thread at one side, tluis uuiking a lot of strings. Take the munher of threads of that hunch 
;md work as follows: 

Lav the Th. the two ends together so ,is to lia\e ,1 rouiul loo]i at middle of strings or Th. insert the eroch<-t liook 
in that space of the 5 ch. of Hairjiin work, catch the looped ]r,ivt of cut threads, draw those threads through the hole that 
the 5 ch. left, slip tlu-ough, catch the ends of fringe and form a tie. Full the knot up closely and compactly; that makes 
oni- tassel of fringe. 

This fringe is very prett\ when iiiade with two colco's. ,V jiale blue or very pale green or old gold is a line eombinalion. 
Another tine headed fringe, if that is jireferred: .String the beads hefore starting the Hairjiin work, then ])ush the 
lieads as you go along, so that the heads are around the prongs; hut keep the heads only to one side if you want a fring<-. 
.\ band for ladies' hats of gold cord or silk can also be made on the fork. 

For all this work, either B. & .\., Belding or Cortieelli silks may be used, also the .\viation silk fm- hags and slipjiers. 
From the finest 0(10 silks to the coarse Maeranu' Cord, even cari)et hemp; also sewing silk, 00 or A, works up fine. 
To the ladies that like nuiny new designs and noveltie-., the Hairpin gimp is just the thing. 

When once the worker has learned the best way of Joining the loops of Hairpin work, so as to make a netted appear- 
ance, like Fig. i or Fig. 3, then she gained the control nf a large assortment 
There is evervthinii- in joining it.
